“Unfortunately, the on-board recorders of such air-crafts are not equipped with the radio locators, thus we will search the sea bottom for them among the wreckage, which hopefully preserved,” he said.

As we reported earlier, 84 passengers and 8 crew members died as Russia’s Tu-154 crashed over the Black Sea on December 25, at about 5 a.m. Kyiv time, which was on its way from Russia to Syrian airport of Latakia. 154 fragments of aircraft, 11 dead bodies – that’s what Russian rescue teams found so far on the crash site.
